Short Film vs Feature (regarding career)
Do short films have any power now in film industry? Do they catch attention of the film circle beyond just being posted on Vimeo and possibly having an award at a festival? Or is it just better doing a feature to prove your ability to do a feature even on a low budget?
I know of a couple examples of how shorts were made into features like Lights Out and others, but professionals I know say short films lead to nowhere and a real film producer wouldn't take it seriously unless it's jaw-dropping which it most certainly won't be.
